CDA Cares volunteer registration now open


Volunteer registration is now open for the CDA Cares Pomona and Sacramento dental clinics.

CDA Cares Pomona will be held on Nov. 21-22 at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona. CDA Cares Sacramento will be held on March 27-28, 2015, at Cal Expo.

Volunteers will help provide oral health care services at no charge to a large number of expected patients, who will receive cleanings, fillings, extractions, oral health education and assistance in finding a dentist for follow-up care.

Dentists and dental professionals are needed in areas throughout the clinic, including restorative, numbing, pediatric, triage and routing. Dental team members are encouraged to volunteer as well. Community volunteers are needed to assist with registration, clinic setup, data entry, escorting patients, translating and much more.

CDA Cares Pomona and Sacramento will be the sixth and seventh clinics hosted by the CDA Foundation and CDA. Earlier this year, volunteers at CDA Cares Solano provided nearly $1.5 million in charitable dental services to 1,959 people.

The five clinics held to date have now provided $7.5 million in care to more than 10,000 people.
